🎧 I’m With Her by Sarah Zangrich Jeng @sarahzj @jessevnyc @LouisaXZhu @AceRocBooks @PRHAudio @BerkleyPub #LoveAudiobooks

I expected a bit more of a technical scifi aspect.  There wasn’t too much on the technology.  I’m With Her is much more a psychological thriller. One young woman, Elizabeth, is confidant and used to having her way because of her beauty.  Mary is by no means ugly but lacks confidence and is more interested […]

  I was excited to be back in the world of the Soulwood series. As with most urban fantasy, I would definitely read these in order. I have read the Jane Yellowrock series which I think also helps one to understand more of the world and characters. Plus it is just great reading. The Soulwood […]

The Shadow Age is a new series with a complex magic system.  The setting is a smaller university town just east of Tucson, Arizona.  It seems a bit odd the main character is Petra Grady which has a Scandinavian feel, while it is actually Greek and Irish origins.  Anyway, Petra is a likely urban fantasy […]

I was thrilled to continue with the Midsolar Murders.   The characters and world had a good foundation laid in the first book Station Eternity which is where Mallory and Xan and several aliens live. The station itself is sentient, bonded now with Mrs. Brown. Mrs. Brown decides to take a trip and leaves Mallory to […]

I am excited to have a new series from Benedict Jacka!  I read a bit about the magic on his website before reading the book.  It was short reading and gave me a bit more of a foundation for the story. I like the main character, Stephen, who has some long-time friends but really no […]

The Unorthodox Chronicles series is written by Jim Butcher’s son, James. As with most urban fantasy, each book further develops the world and characters so I would read them in order.  Often when starting a series, I am just trying to understand how everything works.  Now I wanted to see what the story would be […]

🎧 The Book That Wouldn’t Burn by Mark Lawrence @mark__lawrence #JessicaWhittaker @AceRocBooks @PRHAudio @BerkleyPub #LoveAudiobooks

The Book That Wouldn’t Burn is the start of a new trilogy.  It is long and there is plenty of world-building.  Since it was about a library, it was easy to keep reading.  But by the end I was wondering if I am smart enough to read this trilogy. Livira was born out in the […]
